Petroleum products are now airborne. This person is on oxygen laced with petroleum. As fuel prices rise, the driver of the vehicle is dying because petroleum is in their lungs; it creates a heart condition where the heart is going to burst and kill the sick, sleeping driver. The driver’s dreams fall upon the pink pillow. She dreams of ancient animals that were on earth before humans. The human has created millions of modern animals who need petroleum products to work properly. The earth is dying and so are its inhabitants. They cry out. “Where are the electric cars and clean air?” The patient’s heart bursts and the animals come alive off her pillow and devour her flesh. Petroleum products are sold throughout the world at a huge profit. They will never give up their net gain.
